Took a shower and got ready to leave for the airport
Checked-in. Had breakfast and made my way to Immigration
30,000 feet above, on my way to Singapore!
Landed in Singapore, cleared Immigration, picked up my luggage, got a SIM card (after failing to get a portable WiFi router).
Made my way to Alessia‘s office!
Picked up Alessia and off to her place. Short home tour and instructions for her lovely cats.
Alessia leaves for work, and the unpacking begins. Reconfirmed backstage schedule with SGFW peeps.
Took a power nap. Caught Kali the cat watching me sleep.
Packed equipment and off to National Gallery!
Photographed backstage with my 10-minute timeframe
Registered for photographer’s pass, and waits for the show to begin.
Show began in the tightest photographer’s pit ever.
Show ended, and off to dinner with the Europeans.
Made it back to the condo with Alessia and Joeri. Chat until 1AM.
Dragged self out of bed, took a shower and started editing photos.
Left for lunch with Elaine!
Arrived back at Alessia’s, and finalised photos.
Post is finally up, and off to dinner with Yen!
Cheryl suggested that I post my daily SGFW schedule to give a better perspective on what actually happens behind-the-scenes, and I loved her idea!
I hope my little timeline will be able to shed some light on the amount of work that goes on before a photograph is published.
Being a long-time fan of Guo Pei‘s work, I’ve already mentally prepared myself to capture as many intricate details as I can. The tripod that I brought turned out to be no help as the photographer’s pit was insane! Having found a tight corner, I snapped away with my heavy 80-200mm lens (hello, biceps!).
I absolutely adored Guo Pei’s pieces, and what a lovely surprise to see a number of Malaysian models on the runway!
